[ News, Science / Tech, August 2 2007] Korea to build 'smart highway' for safe high-speed driving

Korea will use state-of-the-art technology to build a "smart highway" that can allow cars to travel safely at speeds up to 160 kilometers per hour, the government said Thursday (Aug. 2).


"Money will be used to draw up blueprints for the road, develop new pavement materials, design interchanges and build road-related structures," a official said. He added that information technology (IT) will be incorporated into the system that will update drivers on the flow of traffic and help them avoid accidents. IT will play a critical role in the road's safety.
